's, that unleashed this torrent of arc money into our elections. citizens united is an interesting case to study. chief justice roberts, his highlight on the court. a lot of court experts wrote of him being on a sort of progression of slowly dismantling the campaign-finance laws, the foundation of those laws we got in the 1970's. citizens united is by far the biggest there. upcoming case will be another one, the listing rules for aris. and potentially some court watchers believe, he could not down the benefits given to candidates and parties themselves. so, the citizens united is the most high-profile decision on this issue, but very much in a string of cases and we do not know how this is going to and yet either. marianne from tennessee on our line for independents. good morning. caller: good morning. i have a question about dark money. when the representatives who are supposed to be representing us shut down the government over obamacare, the stock market went down. resumed, iternment went up the same day. since these representatives get a heads up on the market movements, how many of them mad

and new jersey vote together, it would be the first time, that the two states have elected governors from different parties since 1985. a lot of history there. joining me now, nbc news senior political editor mark murray and also senior washington correspondent for politico. i'll start with you mark. let's first talk about virginia. as i said, a 30-year trend seems to be on its way to being broken. >> well, right, of course the marquis contest is the gubernatorial race where terry mccalliffe is in the driver's seat. may be the closest contest will be the state attorney general's race between mark herring and mark o ben shane, the polling we've seen on attorney generals race is a little tougher. the polling we've seen it is very close. democrats do have the chance for a sweep. and it's significant because it's a state in virginia which has been a swing state. it's perfectly reflected the spread in the 2008, 2012 presidential races and that's what we'll watch tomorrow night. >> the poll shows mcauliffe is up 6% and also interesting to know note, mark, how much the clintons have been involve
there are certain folks in the republican party have no grasp of reality in terms of why they lose elections. this is why they lose elections. >> listen, both parties are alienating voters and i know this is not, these is not ted cruz's words. this is not his father. he's not a public figure, an elected official. whatever role this is, amy holmes, i want to ask you, does this hurt the tea party? >> i think that it serves to hurt those who advocate for conservative and free market principals when it gets into the free-market attacks. i agree with chris on that basis. it turns off the voters and drives down voter turnout during elections when the attacks get nasty like this. in terms of, you know, the go back to kenya remark, i disagree with that. i believe president obama was born in america, an american. i have seen the documentation. as far as, you know, charging him with not being a christian. i believe president obalm aulm at his word that he is a christian. this becomes a distraction. >> i have to jump in, i have to jump in. why are so many people still fixated on the president and the c
are disappointed is the wrong word but furious by the fact that the democratically elected president has been deposed, will there be many nations in the region, many people internationally who wish for things to change further, for the military to take a back seat once again, given that it happened when it did? >> certainly in the international community and particularly in the west, there's broad support for military returning to the barracks and not running the country. but unfortunately the ability for the international community to affect that outcome is very, very limited. it was therefore the most likely institution to respond when morsi lost control. i think that's really the important point to america here that this is -- to make here: that this is not just the point of morsi being a bad president or noninclusive president but who lost control during his final months of power. when a president loses control, there are no really happy endings and this is one of those unhappy endings that we are witnesses. >> we thank you very much indeed. >> thank you for having me. >> not to block sup
it longer. that would make for one-third less campaigns and elections, all of the expenses associated with that. i'll hang up listening. guest: one of the projects that we have under way at the bipartisan policy center is a democracy project, we call it the democracy project which we launched earlier this year where we are looking into the specific issues that you mentioned, jack, as it relates to government filibusters, campaign finance the issues of redistricting out there. first of all, i think i agree with you, jack, this is more than just spending and revenues. structure. some of the issues that have created difficulties and coming to agreements going forward. at the same time, jack, i guess i'm an old senate staffer, i'm going to have to disagree with you on the filibuster. i do believe that the great deliberative body here called the united states senate, that the filibuster does have a role to play. think our founding fathers made it very clear they expected to be these kinds of conflicts but expected that the passions of the house would be cooled by the senate as george washi
a lot to do with a youtube video of the why was that? because there was election month later. bill: will show the youtube video was fabricated? what about the demonstration reported at one point? >> they will say from the very beginning it was a coordinated, well-executed, well-planned attack of terrorists on the american consulate in benghazi. bill: graham will not give this up. kelly ayote will not give up either. do you think they eventually get to them? >> i think what happens, the people, career civil servants, tell bense officers, soldiers who were there at the time, the special-ops guys, they will eventually come forward and say the truth. why? because they have saw their friend and colleagues die and they are still angry because nobody came to rescue them and they're still angry because, even at this date a year later nobody has gone after the terrorists. bill: 14 months later in fact. there is another report out of washington that two special operations forces had arrived in benghazi in time, and actually engaged in this terrorist hit. what do you think about that? >> i th
the people who fund republican elections from big business and traditional republican establishment and yes, he has a small vocal and loud support in the grassroots, but if he's really serious, i think, he needs to work as a senator. he needs more of those olive branches he's now extending and we'll see where he gets and if he runs in 2016, it will really hurt republicans and the tea party plan and we heard from people like bachmann, how does he do it? ? how does he broaden the tent in fellow republican basis? >> we don't know if he wants to do that, thomas. we don't know if he wants to become the next reagan or the next sarah palin. sarah palin became a queen maker by going out of establishment politics. he wants to play kingmaker for the rest of his life and he's well on his way for doing that and he's not going to do that by extending olive branches so it remains to be seen. >> kelly goff, james peterson and igor of big thank you very much. have a good holiday. i don't know if you've seen igor's holiday pictures. that's a good plug for his twitter handle. join our agenda se
on this piece. a lot of democrats say who cares what his approval ratings are. he never has to be elected again. that's true. if you go back and look at the history of second term midterms of a president, they almost always bad for his party. there is a reason for that. the only way people dissatisfied with the direction of the country, the president, the only way they can cast a protest vote is to do so against his party as opposed to against him. i think his numbers do matter. i think you've highlighted the critical piece of it, which is president obama always this people like him even if they didn't approve of his policies. the like him numbers are fading, which is really important to note. >> when we talk about those midterms, chris and mark, we're talking about congressional ratings that are really bottoming out. for the first time in a long time, people don't like their own congress member. they used to say throw those other bums out but i like my own guy, my own woman. now lets give somebody else a chance, 63%, that's a big number. >> look at presidential approval rating, look at the bat
based on. >> all of this comes as stop and frisk has been a major issue in new york's mayoral election, which takes place this tuesday. democraticsio, the nominee for mayor who is leading his republican opponent joe lhota, said he was extremely disappointed by the decision. ask for more we're joined by -- >> for more we're joined by sunita patel. can you talk about the significance of this decision? was quite stunning, saying stop and frisk was unconstitutional, pointing -- saying a monitor had to be put in place to come up with reforms for the police department. but all of that has been turned around. >> it is very disappointing and shocking. the decision was to supporting and shocking. i think we need to make sure we're clear on what was in front of them. the city was asking for a stay of her reform process. although the judge said all of these things need to be put into place immediately, she also deferred to the monitor a process whereby the city would have a role in shaping what those reforms would be. none of those reforms were actually ordered to happen immediately. in the face
election? >> we are as far away from that is possible and i think the rollout has been disastrous and kathleen sebelius took responsibility for that today, saying that it has been a debacle. but the question is how does that impact voters and you take a state like new jersey and you heard a congressman say that there's 800,000 people who will be negatively impacted with policy changes in the look out at california and there is a larger number there because that was a highly unregulated insurance market. >> hundreds of thousands by each provider. cancellations and you're hearing about. >> if you look at new jersey and california, they are both blue states. it's not likely to have a big shift in terms of the senate race and certainly not when you get to 2016 in the presidential race. but if this thing implodes and then becomes a matter of blame game on a massive scale than we what we are seeing now, then there is a potential for fallout and right now you have to say that it doesn't look like it. if you get to a state like florida, they could have some complaints. but right now polit
're all together, a big happy family, but not so. you have senator landrieu facing a tough re-election fight. she's actually proposing now that you should be able to keep your health plan, what the president said all along. you have senator joe manchin, democrat west virginia, also proposing legislation. so, is it really the case that the democrats are the one that are jumping ship, not so much the republicans who were already over the other place? >> i think the democrats who can read the writing on the wall, or certainly listen to their constituents and not just continue with the talking points of, you know, fix it, don't nix it, are the ones who are really aware of what's going on here. this idea of just blaming someone else is also prepostero preposterous, too. they're realizing they have to work together to do something. before they were saying we're not taking republican amendments, we're not going to count your votes or listen to you, but now that their ship is sinking, they want a life preserver and say, look, i want to help save this. there are things we could be doing to fix
in the republican party. >> sure. these aren't citizens who go to a rally and say something. these are elected officials who bear the republican party across their chest. it's alarming in one sense, but also heartening in another sense. because the more they ratchet up this rhetoric, the more this hate and divisiveness spews out, the more it's going to draw out moderate republican voters away from the republican party and its candidates. it's a terribly damaging thing for the republican party to have someone out there saying we're a christian nation. michigan has a large number of voting americans. you want to offend them. you want to offend jewish voters? it's makes no sense. when they hear this stuff and it's not disavowed, that was the point you made at the beginning. if ted cruz was smart, he would disavow his dad in as kind of words as he can. but he would say, look. the president isn't from kenya. he's born in the united states. he's a u.s. citizen. he's not a muslim. he's a christian. let's move on to some important economic issues. >> well, without doing that, krystal, the republican p

is elected on tuesday. peggy fox takes a look at the roles education, contraception and abortion could be playing in the election. >> reporter: here are some issues you might be concerned about. last year virginia lawmakers required that women seeking abortions get abdominal ultra sounds first, made some critical funding decisions and made some decisions that brought jobs to the state. volunteers worked tirelessly telling voters about comstock's no. 1 priority, jobs. >> i've passed legislation which kept this growing industry. >> reporter: at her democratic opponent headquarters first time candidate democrat kathleen murphy gives us her view on growing jocks. >> i think it is how we can -- jobs. >> i think it is how we can make virginia a welcoming place so that people want to come here to work. that is by funding transportation solutions. >> reporter: murphy criticizes comstock for her vote to require abdominal ultra sounds for women seeking abortions and to require strict new regulations on clinics performing abortions. >> we are talking about health and safety regulations and tha
but by democrats who voted for this thing, because they don't want to be stuck out there next year in an election year having to explain a website that still doesn't work. >> let's go back to the hearing. this is the chairman, the republican from michigan, checking her. >> i don't have that metric with me but i'll check on it. >> i believe those are numbers that cms has put out. the associated press reported in early september that there was a memo prepared for the assistant -- by the assistant secretary for planning and health. are you aware of that press story and that memo? i think it went through your office to secretary sebelius? >> it went through the enrollment numbers? >> yes. and it said that there were month-to-month predictions of enrollment numbers showing a path to the seven million that i mentioned. >> right. >> could you make that memo available to the committee? >> certainly. >> according to the press report, the memo estimated that 494,620 people would sign up for health insurance under the program by october 31st. we're obviously very near that date. have you met that estimate?
a political bombshell just emerging tonight. was president obama really considering running for re-election without joe biden? >>> we are back with a story finally getting more attention. the mysterious death of a high school football player in georgia and his parents who are convinced this was no accident. nbc's gabe gutierrez has more on the disturbing evidence and the strange case and the video tape that may be the key to all of it. >> reporter: newly released surveillance video shows small glimpses of kendrick johnson's final hours. the 17-year-old known as k.j. is seen entering his high school gym in georgia in january. >> we've got a body in the high school here. there is a dead body up here. >> reporter: the video does not show how the body ended up here inside a rolled up gym mat in a lonely space just over 14 inches wide. >> we have to fight for him because if we don't fight no one will. >> reporter: kenneth and jacqueline johnson believe their son was murdered and someone is trying to cover it up. >> we want justice and we're not stopping until we get justice. >> reporter: today a
